"Mumia Street" Website And Message Board


Never let it be said that the French are not proud of their "accomplishments".

It is apparently not enough for them to enrage many a U.S. citizen by naming a street in their country after convicted cop-killer, Mumia Abu-Jamal. An action which even had Jamal supporters scratching their head searching for a point.

After all, isn't the naming of street after someone usually done after the honoree has passed on to the nether regions? I could go on a long tangent about that, but I have faith in my readers that they could adequately interject their own ideas about that one...

Anyways, now that a street in France has been defiled by Jamal's name, the Organizers have seen fit to enshrine their vulgar act on the Internet with a website that chronicles their actions.

Needless to say, the site is written in the "language of love" and has been a challenge to figure out given my self-taught Latin and two years of Spanish in school. But, given the fact that Mumia sites peddle mostly the same lies I have gotten through most of it well enough.

And, best of all, they have a message board. Now, anyone who knows me or who keeps up with this blog knows that I have a love for message boards. The problem of course is that those who are in charge of pro-Jamal boards have a proclivity for banning me from the site or shutting the board down all-together.

To their credit, the French have yet to ban me from the site or delete my posts and so I fully intend to continue to make my presence known and encourage everyone else to do so, especially if you have the command of the French language that I do not.

It is crucial at this point to understand that France remains one few remaining bastions of extremist, pro-Jamal sentiment, because it's people remain ignorant of the facts of the case.

By using the forums we have available to us to engage in dialogs and debate, we help to break down this wall of slavish orthodoxy and diminish the Mumia mythology that pervades French, leftist culture.

Celebrities And Even FOP Member To Celebrate Jamal

(pic of Danny Glover)
On April 24th Mumia’s birthday there is set to be an event in Philadelphia to celebrate Jamal’s life of accomplishment that include the savage murder of a Philadelphia Police Officer amongst other things.

Breaking from recent traditions, this celebration will be in Philadelphia instead of New York City.

This event will be held at

Clef Club 738 Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19146
Voice 215-893-9912 <> Fax 215-893-9917Email:

This venue should be made to understand that helping to raise funds and celebrate the life of a convicted cop-killer is a bad business move, not to speak of moral one.
Aside from the usual cast of charchters present there will be a couple of current and former police officers who stand in support of Jamal. One of whom is, ironically enough, a member of the Fraternal Order of Police.

Sergeant De Lacy Davis, who on his website is listed as a member of the Fraternal Order of Police, is an instructor at the Essex County Police Academy and a New Jersey State-Certified firearms instructor. He has served as the Vice President of the Police Benevolent Association, Local #16, and the executive director of the East Orange Police Athletic League.
He is also the head of an Organization that purports to stand against police abuses. Something I have no quarrel with, but when you confuse the issue of police malfeasance and the brutal murder of an innocent police officer, than you have crossed the line.
Mr. Davis can be reached through his organization,

Black Cops Against Police Brutality:
or by mail at Black Cops Against Police BrutalityP.O. Box 4256East Orange, New Jersey 07019

Another Police Officer or former Officer standing in support of Jamal, (I believe that he is no longer actively serving as an officer but have not yet been able to ascertain that information), is
Ron Hampton. Hampton, on the surface seems legitimate enough until one discovers his ties to the communist front group the National Lawyers Guild. A group which has been steadfastly pro-cop-killing since it’s inception.

Another of the esteemed guests who is set to attend the Jamal event is Danny Glover. In an apparent effort to one-up his disgraced Lethal Weapon co-star Mel Gibson, Glover has been on an embarrassing campaign of embracing the worst elements of anti-Americanism and it’s symbols. He has embraced Castro, taken up for the tyrant Chavez, agreed with the outrageous comments of Harry Belefontae, and has for years been a vocal supporter of Jamal.

For a number of years the people of Philadelphia have let it be known that benefits for Jamal are not welcome in their city. Let them know of this oncoming outrage and let the supporters of Jamal that they have no place in the city where Jamal slaughtered Officer Faulkner.

Pam Africa Wants MORE Money

I guess MOVE has spent up the millions of dollars they received from their lawsuits against the city of Philadelphia as a result of the 1985 conflict ‘cause MOVE crony, Pam Africa, is groveling for money to go to France.

Must be nice to have the gravitas to actually go online and plead for money so that you can take a trip to Europe.

One does have to wonder though, where has all the MOVE/Mumia money gone? I have personally seen people give Pam fat wads of cash and saw Mumia events where huge amounts of donations were given by the literal bucket load for the organizing of Mumia. People should ask themselves before they give their hard-earned money to Pam Africa, just where the money is going.

Is it going to pay off the killer or killers of John Gilbride?

Is it helping to fund a cult that enforces a policy of forced rape of young girls?

Or is it going to line the pockets of a corrupt and bitter old woman who is a full-time con-artist?

Here is Pam’s pitiable plea for your money:

ONA MOVE, Y'ALL! This is Pam Africa, ona move as always and in need of your support. I know that these are very difficult times for everybody but I am really in need of your help. I need to be in France, in Saint Denis, in late April for the anniversary of the street naming of Rue Mumia Abu Jamal. The people of Saint Denis took a courageous unwavering stand despite the terroristic intimidation tactics of this U.S. government and its supporters. The street naming generated a lot of publicity around Mumia and we cannot allow that focus to disappear, particularly since Mumia will have his oral arguments in the Third Circuit Court on May 17th. I need funds for this much needed trip and other crucial expenses generated around the fight to save Mumia's life. I just don't have the money to pay for these expenses out of my own pocket. Most donations go to the legal effort to pay Mumia's lawyer but I need funds for the day-to-day work of organizing on behalf of Mumia. Please make donations out to:The National Black United FundDonations MUST be earmarked "ORGANIZING" and should be sent to our P.O. Box, which is:P.O. Box 19709 Phila., PA. 19143. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about this call for funds. Thanks in advance for your anticipated support. Ona Move----- Pam Africa

Protest NYC's Remote Lounge

The Remote Lounge in NYC is set to be the scene of the latest outrage in a long history of outrages in NYC with regards to Mumia and the MOVE 9.

This venue has seen fit to allow a fund-raiser on their premises for not only Mumia, but also for the "MOVE 9" as well.

An event honoring and raising funds on behalf of 10 cop-killers, all for the price of one.

I personally wrote the Lounge and asked them to comment on this "event" and they have refused to respond.

I wanted to know why they are throwing a get together celebrating the murder of police officers.

You should want to know why as well.

The organizer for this event is not surprisingly a MOVE tool named Orie Ross.

Contact the Remote Lounge and let them know your feelings on this matter.

They can be reached at 212.228.0228 or via email at

Green Without Blue and Long Memories

The echo from the shots which rang out some twenty-six years ago near the intersection of Locust Street and 12th Street in Philadelphia can still be heard today. In fact, on Sunday, March 18th they will be especially loud. Exactly 85.9 miles from the spot where Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner fell, masses will be gathering and preparing to march in the Newark St. Patrick's Day Parade. However, for the first time in many years a deeply entrenched tradition will be broken: there will be no police officers among the participants. To serve as this year's parade honoree, organizers chose Congressman Donald Payne. This choice drew the ire of New Jersey law enforcement (read our editorial) and Philadelphia law enforcement as well.

Last December, Congressman Payne voted against a Resolution condemning a city in France for naming a street after Mumia Abu Jamal, the street animal who murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. In response, the New Jersey State FOP formally objected and requested parade organizers to reconsider their choice. (Read FOP President Edward R. Brannigan's letter) Organizers stuck by their decision. Then, in an incredible statement of solidarity and unfading memory, Newark officers announced they will not be marching. None of these officers even knew Daniel Faulkner, and many weren't even yet born when he was killed. We find it absolutely awe inspiring that such allegiance still flows through our ranks. It gets better. The relationship between police officers and firefighters can best be compared to that between two brothers. They sometimes fight, but they're always there for each other when needed. Well, the firefighters have once again proven themselves to be loyal and caring brothers. It was announced yesterday that they too would be boycotting the parade. Cheers to you, New Jersey's bravest. True class.

Whether anyone else skips this year's parade remains to be seen, but, honestly, who cares. It's already been shown that a 25-year-old policeman who was brutally murdered a quarter century ago has not been forgotten by his fellow knights. What a statement. Since this episode began, Congressman Payne has clarified the reasoning for his vote and distanced himself from the pro-Mumia crowd which we're glad to see. From the Friday Star Ledger: "First, the measure injected Congress into a matter still pending in the justice system," Payne wrote in a letter published Friday in The Star-Ledger of Newark. "We would also be setting a poor precedent by involving Congress in the affairs of a French town and urging the French government to take action against a town for the naming of a street."

Yes, the matter is still pending further appeal, but it's been twenty-six years since Officer Faulkner's murder. When will it be enough time? As far as France, her government and citizenry have never had a problem criticizing America and Americans. With this said, emotions need to be kept in check. Congressman Payne is not Abu-Jamal, and he had nothing to do with Officer Daniel Faulkner's murder. 368 other members of congress saw the Resolution as an opportunity to unite behind a fallen police officer, and we're disappointed that 31 members didn't see it that way no matter what the reasoning. It's been twenty-six years since his murder, and people are still learning the name Daniel Faulkner every day. This day is no different. Justice for Daniel Faulkner.

NYC Council's Cop-Killing Cheerleader

(NYC City Councilman Charles Barron)
Recently, the choice to support Mumia Abu-Jamal has come back to haunt a number of politicians, as their lack of judgement has reaped a harvest of civic rage.

A fury of righteous indignation has jeopardized the Philadelphia mayoral campaign of Chakah Fattah. Fattah, has in the past made a number of pro-Jamal statements that have alienated him from Philadelphia’s law enforcement community.

A potentially fatal political twist given the citiy’s spiraling violent crime rate. A city that has grown weary of racialist rhetoric that does nothing to alter the plight of the cities poor who are overwhelmingly the victims of the plague of violence.

In New Jersey, there is also fallout for another politician, U.S. Congressman Donald Payne. Payne, was one of the 31 Congressmen to not sign the recent bill excoriating France for naming a street for Jamal. After Newark choose to honor Mr. Payne at the city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, the Fraternal Order Of Police fired off a protest letter that criticized the idea of honoring a man who they viewed as a supporter of a cop-killer.

The parades’s organizers have refused to recuse their celebration of Congressman Payne, the publicity however, cannot be good for Mr. Payne’s reputation.

One politician who seemingly has paid no political price for his support of Jamal, and one who in fact seems to enjoy the spotlight it brings to him is NYC City Councilman Charles Barron.

Barron, it seems to not only support Jamal as a cop-killer, but the idea of murdering police officers in general.

It seems that he hasn’t heard of a cop killer that he won’t stump for, and he has made comments of his own that seem to advocate not only violence against law enforcement, but also "white people" in general.

From a 2002 rally for reparations for slavery Barron said that "I want to go up to the closest white person and say, ‘You can’t understand this, it’s a black thing’ and then slap him, just for my mental health

He has appeared at rallies and signed his name for numerous petitions on behalf of Jamal. Barron, like Jamal, is a former member of the Black Panther Party. In fact, perhaps nostalgic for a bygone era, Barron claims that he "still is a Black Panther".

In addition to his outspoken support for Jamal he has sponsored legislation in NYC’s City Council calling for the release of "political prisoners" which translated often means radical leftists convicted of crimes of violence, often against peace officers.

Barron also has also recently appeared at rallies for the recently indicted eight former Black Panther members who...surprise, surprise, are being charged with waging a veritable war against law enforcement officers in the 1970's in both New York and California that ended in the death of police officer in San Francisco during an attack on a police station.

Barron is also unapologetic about his support for Assata Shakur. Another ex-panther who was convicted and sentenced to 26 to 33 years in prison for her role in the death’s of two New Jersey State Troopers in May of 1973. In 1979, Shakur was sprung from prison by her comrades who took a corrections officer hostage during their crime spree that culminated with Shakur ending up in Cuba in 1986 where Castro allowed her political asylum. From the relative safety of Cuba, Shakur has flaunted her escape and has been an outspoken advocate of other cop-killers like Jamal and those of his ilk.

One has to wonder how effective Councilman Barron can be for his constituents as he is a literal cheerleader for the murder of law enforcement officers and an inciter of racial tensions.
Moreover, the question begs to be asked, just how such a retrograde and cynical politician, who clearly is out of touch with reality can stay under the radar screen? Other civil servants who espouse such a clearly atavistic and reactionary ideology are ritually and routinely dragged through the proverbial mud, and justifiably so, but Barron seems to be getting away with it.
This is something that people can change.

Recently a movement to name a street in NYC after Jamal was exposed and over 30,000 people have signed a petition against this move to reward Jamal’s murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Charles Barron should be made to pay a steep political price for his support of murder and unrepentant killers, such as Jamal. Let your voices be heard and for those of you in NYC who have the misfortune of being in Barron’s district, vote this scum out of office and replace him with someone who is not beholden to a violent ideology and self-aggrandizement.

You can view Mr. Barron in his element at the following site

Philly IMC Says No Problem To Child Rape In MOVE

The following is a response to my last blog post which was also posted at the Philly IMC. It seems that when it comes to MOVE, that there is no lack of moral blindness on the part of those who support them.

"FYI, under Pennsylvania law, sexual activity between a minor and an adult is not prosecuted as any criminal offense if it occurs within the context of a common-law marriage (i.e. - a marriage contracted before witnesses and held out to the community as a marriage but not performed "on paper" by a civil or religious authority signing a marriage license). The courts apply the principle of "marital privilege". The minimum age of consent for a legal common-law marriage is seven years old. While Pennsylvania has recently stopped the practice of recognizing new common-law marriages, any common-law marriage entered into before 2003 (or 2005, depending on which court's precedent applies in the jurisdiction) is still recognized as valid. Therefore, even if Tony's email quote were accurate, the fact that child marriage (even, or especially unofficial marriage practiced informally) is legal in Pennsylvania might explain why the Philadelphia District Attorney and Human Services would still not get involved"

Had the person who posted the above drivel left their email I would have responded to their bullshit on a more personal level, but they did not, so I take it here.

Let me be clear. It is rape when an 11 or twelve year old girl, who can barely read or write is forced to become pregnant and than "married" to a "man" five or six years her senior.

Why on earth am I still fighting this battle with some people seems to me to be beyond ludicrous. I have never seen the kind of wasteland of pseudo-intellectualism of the kind that currently finds acceptable the kind of sexual violence that is perpetrated among these children of MOVE members.

It is like arguing with people who find no problem at all with the "clitoral circumcision" that happens in certain Islamic societies. It just boggles the mind.

What is perhaps more vexing is that invariably those making the arguments for the allowance of the rape of children are the same people who hold themselves above society as bastions of freedom and tolerance and who readily spit contempt upon anyone who they perceive as some kind of agent of patriarchy. It is bullshit.

I could care less what kind of erroneous cognitive dissonance that allows for this kind of acceptance of abuse. I don't have time for it.

But while it is easy for me in a sense to walk away and say that I am done with it all, it is not so easy to forget what is going on behind the well-manicured and well-kept homes of MOVE's leaders.

And while most of those among MOVE chose to ignore the very real crimes that are being committed around them, I find those on the outside who go out of there way to justify the unjustifiable. It is beyond sick.

The Sex Crimes Against Children In MOVE Continue...

(Pic of MOVE Founder John Africa)

Recently, in Easton Pa, a 44 year old woman was sentenced to 9 to 23 months in prison for having an affair with a 16-year-old boy. In addition to the prison sentence the sex offender was fined $5,000 and perform 100 hours of community service. This after she pleaded guilty to "corruption of a minor".

One can argue the stiffness of the woman’s punishment considering that in PA the age of consent is 16 years old. For me, it is difficult to understand what purpose sending this woman to an already crowded jail, for a crime she has readily acknowledged, with a young man who knew full well what he was doing.

That is not to say that I believe she should go without any punishment at all, just that I think prison in this case to be a tad harsh.

But what does this have to do with my blog about MOVE?


You see, as I write these words, children in MOVE are being forced into sexual relationships with other children or adults. This is not a rumor or conjecture on my part, this is what I saw during my time with MOVE, this is what Ramona Africa has boldly admitted to via email. This is the reality of young people who have the misfortune of being born into a cult that practices the abuse of children as a matter of policy.

The woman in Easton PA committed a crime of passion. The MOVE cult is committing crimes of deliberate sexual degradation as a matter of policy that is ruthlessly enforced and openly carried out.

As I have reported before, girls as young as 11 years old are forced into sexual relationships with the goal of conceiving more "MOVE children". These girls are not educated in any real sense and are essentially valued only as incubators for new cult members. They are stripped of any sense of dignity, self-worth, intellect, essentially their most fundamental human rights. And all for what?

This crime, which is not one that is hidden or denied is carried out under the auspices of "freedom of religion". When exactly the forced rape of little girls became a tolerated religious practice is unknown to me.

But what equals this crime in it’s horror is the non-response to it by Philadelphia authorities.

The District Attorney’s Office know what is going on and do nothing.

The city’s Health and Human Services Department know and do nothing.

The Police know about this and do nothing.

Moreover, the media knows about this and refuse to write about it.

I have lost track of all of the people in the media and in places of influence in Philadelphia regarding this matter and none of them will speak out publicly about it, not to speak of actually take any action to stop it.

As far as I am concerned, those who know and sit silent, are now unwilling co-conspirators in this heinous crime, their silence standing as a muted acceptance of the brutality being imposed upon these kids at the hands of MOVE’s leaders

One can expect authoritarian cults such as MOVE to behave in such ways. Such is their nature.
But when those who are sworn to uphold the safety and security of the public turn their backs on the most vulnerable of the citizenry, than a breach of public trust has occurred and someone should be held accountable.

Who will be the person in "power" to stand up and force MOVE to halt this practice and hold those within the Organization responsible?

I don’t know the answer to that question, but this writer is sick of waiting for one to step up and do so.

A City On The MOVE

(from 215-854-2646

THE WORLD was a different place in November 1988, and so was Philadelphia.Ronald Reagan was still in the White House, and young Eagles' QB Randall Cunningham was winning the Bert Bell Trophy as the NFL's best player. Also in Philadelphia, the aftermath of the 1985 MOVE bombing on Osage Avenue still inflamed passions.That month, with hints of unrest over ownership of the MOVE house at 6221 Osage, including the involvement of up-and-coming civil-rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton, city officials decided to place an around-the-clock police guard there.

That was more than 18 years ago.

Since then, there have been three successors to then-Mayor W, Wilson Goode, the city has paid millions in damages and for homes, and survivor Ramona Africa has been released from prison. The world has learned about the Internet, iPods, and Ryan Howard.But the round-the-clock police guard at 6221 Osage has stayed, at a cost to city taxpayers that has grown into the millions of dollars over time. This year alone, the city is paying roughly $400,000 for the full-time policing.

Yesterday, the Street administration said the 24/7 guard duty will be terminated - a decision that was disclosed just hours after a news report about the police detail aired on Fox 29 (WXTF)."The mayor has made this clear," a senior city official told the Daily News. The city is studying some type of ongoing cop presence there, officials said, but it will be greatly reduced - along the lines of checking the property once every eight-hour shift or so."I have asked the police commissioner to provide an alternative plan to the extent that there are security concerns at the house that don't involve a 24/7 presence, if he doesn't feel it is required," city Managing Director Pedro Ramos said yesterday.

Ramos admitted that he was not aware until this week's TV report that there still was a full-time police detail - which operates inside the furnished home - at the MOVE property.Officials stressed yesterday that the policing there - the equivalent of five full-time officers - is provided by the Civil Affairs Unit and does not involve officers from the 18th Police District, which has headquarters at 55th and Pine.Nevertheless, any cost savings from ending the around-the-clock unit ultimately could be diverted into fighting the city's skyrocketing murder rate, which is outpacing other large American cities.

Yesterday, a reporter who visited the former MOVE house found it better kept up than most of its boarded-up neighbors, but with little to indicate its police presence other than a sign outside reading, "Permit Parking for Phila. Police Civil Affairs."The property also functions as a maintenance building for the Redevelopment Authority, which stores hammers, nails, plywood, rakes, shears, shovels and even a snowblower there. The city bought the MOVE house and others nearby not long after cops dropped a bomb from a helicopter during a 1985 standoff between police and the radical group. The bomb killed 11 people and burned down 61 rowhouses.

Gerald Wayne Renfrow, president of the Osage-Pine Community Association and block captain, said he and other residents would be happy to see the police leave."I'm a taxpayer, too. I don't want the city spending more money to keep the cops here," he said.It was the involvement of Sharpton, who later became a 2004 Democratic candidate for president, that prompted the initial police presence in 1988.Louise James, the sister of the late MOVE founder John Africa, was agitating to retake ownership of the house from the city.She enlisted the New York-based Sharpton to help her in her efforts, and city officials - wary of more violence little more than three years after the bombing - grew concerned.James S. White, city managing director in 1988, said he ordered the police presence after meeting with Sharpton on Nov. 5, 1988."After my meeting with Reverend Sharpton, it raised some concerns in my mind," White told the Daily News at the time, adding that two full-time officers around the clock were "a precautionary measure."That precautionary measure has gone on for more than 18 years.

Neighborhood residents supported it at the time, according to Renfrow, but he said today that police presence is a reminder of an awful time they'd like to forget."Every day that we see the police there, we feel there is a threat that MOVE will come back," he said.Initially, according to the 1988 article, the operation cost about $4,000 a week, which would be more than $200,000 a year.Ironically, rising salaries and costs have doubled that expense today, even though staffing has been reduced.City officials couldn't estimate the cost over the life of the operation, although a conservative estimate using the lower of the figures would place the total cost as nearing $4 million, at a minimum.Ramos said yesterday there is some sentiment to keep a "close eye on the house given the long history of the house on that block."But he also said it's his judgment - along with the mayor and police commissioner - "that you don't need to continue to do so in the way that it's been done for many years."He said it's likely that electronics such as security cameras and alarms, as well as several daily check-ins by officers, could probably protect the property.
